Former Huskers Mikaela Foecke, Jordan Larson, Kelsey Robinson, Kadie Rolfzen and Justine Wong-Orantes were named to Team USA’s preliminary roster for the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League, USA Volleyball announced Wednesday.
Team USA coach Karch Kiraly will trim the 30-player roster to 25 by May 11. Kiraly can designate 14 players from that pool to compete in each week’s matches.
Pinnacle Bank Arena will host pool play June 4-6, featuring Team USA, Korea, Germany and Brazil. Tournament all-session tickets can be purchased here.
The Volleyball Nations League is an annual international women’s volleyball tournament contested by 16 national teams. Wong-Orantes, Larson and Robinson were on the roster in 2018, when Team USA won the inaugural tournament.
